Peter Doyle is a wedding photographer based in Atlanta who is hungry to pursue personal photography projects.
I sat down to speak with Peter about his recent personal photography project, Childhood Cancer Portraits: Wisdom from the Journey”.
There are 101 portraits of children in Peter's book. Here is a small sample of the wonderful portraits and messages from each child. Take a closer look and read their thoughts.
Peter's other books include:
Haiti’s Hope which highlights the humanity of the Haitian people who were left behind after the 2010 earthquake; To Have & To Hold: a Life for Generations features the stories and interviews of 12 women who were affected by breast cancer while part of a fashion shoot paired with fast cars, helicopters and a private jet in Atlanta, Georgia; Breast Cancer Portraits: Wisdom From The Journey features 49 portraits of men and women breast cancer survivors paired with their handwritten words of wisdom and hope.
Peter's next project is called Uncommon Courage. It is “about WWII veterans, military spouses, Vietnam veterans and NAVY SEALs sharing their wisdom about life, courage and sacrifice to a generation that needs to hear it. From April 1 – August 1, 2015 he will be traveling to Florida, Louisiana, and Washington DC to photograph these patriots. If you know of any vets or military spouses that you think would be interested in sharing their wisdom please email him at email@example.com.”
Peter readily credited Miami, Florida based photographer Brian Smith and his book, Art & Soul for inspiring the design and layout. The book was produced via Create Space, an Amazon subsidiary. Finally, the book and the project would not have been possible with out the help of St. Baldrick's Foundation.
